WALLACE, N.C. -- Junior Lindsay Dodovich matched her career-best score with a 2-under-par 70 on Tuesday, helping the Bucknell women's golf team move up to a fifth-place finish at the Sunoco Campbell Oil Classic at River Landing GC.
Dodovich, who also shot a 2-under 70 in the fall of 2015 at the William & Mary Invitational at Kingsmill, had the lowest score in the entire field and was one of only two players to break par in the final round. She made four birdies on the day, and after shooting 78-81 in the first two rounds on Monday, she moved up to a T-8th finish.
Dodovich missed the school record by one stroke. Bridget Wilcox fired a 3-under 69 at the Penn State Invitational in the fall of 2010. This was the fifth 70 in team history, and the third on a par-72 course.
Paced by Dodovich's 70 and a 78 from Katie Childers, the Bison compiled a 311 team score on Tuesday, their best of the tournament. Bucknell began the final round in sixth place but moved up one spot to place fifth with a 940 composite.
Childers also secured a top-20 finish, placing T-16th after rounds of 79-77-78.
Tournament host UNC Pembroke won the team title. Its 908 total outdistanced runner-up Carson-Newman by five shots. Katy Flex of UNCP finished with a 1-over 217 (68-76-73) to win medalist honors by two shots over Carson-Newman's Elizabeth England.
Bucknell is next in action Apr. 10-11 at the Hoya Invitational, hosted by Georgetown at Four Streams.
